# The XYZ Affair

**Algebra**Level 2

X, Y and Z are corrupt businessmen who launder money for the Mafia. They were caught and sentenced to prison.

X turned informer and got a mere 12 months. Y got twice that plus 4 months. Z was the kingpin and got a whopping 60 months.

It costs $500,000 per month received to bribe a judge to release a prisoner, and $3,000,000 to have a hit arranged in prison. If X is hit and Y and Z are released via bribes, how much will the Mafia have to fork over in millions of dollars?
